Dana White on Mayweather vs. McGregor Rematch: 'Never Say Never But I Doubt It'

UFC President Dana White says he has his doubts regarding a possible rematch between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather, he said on the latest episode of Pardon My Take.

Dan "Big Cat" Katz asked White if he thought there would be a Mayweather vs. McGregor II. White responded by saying, "I never say never but I doubt it."

Mayweather defeated McGregor with a TKO in the 10th round after referee Robert Byrd decided to end the fight. Mayweather improved his record to 50–0 and announced his retirement again after the fight. He surpassed the 49–0 record by Hall of Famer Rocky Marciano.

The fight was McGregor's first professional boxing match and he fared a lot better than many expected. WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn of Australia is set to fight Gary Corcoran in December but members of his camp have expressed interest in a potential fight against McGregor.

McGregor has not fought since he won the the lightweight title by knocking out Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in November 2016. He is the first man to hold two titles in different UFC divisions at the same time. He could be looking to fight Tony Ferguson, who just beat Kevin Lee at UFC 216.

Beginning of a new chapter in test cricket

Oct.14 (CRICKETNMORE) - The International Cricket Council has finally been jolted to save Test cricket. There will be a Test Championship to go along with the One-Day International League.

The blueprint is ready and only the modalities have to be worked out. The Test championship is likely to kick-off with the Ashes series in England in 2019, right after the World Cup.

If the idea can firm up as conceived, it is going to be great moment in the history of international cricket and it can definitely liven up cricket's longest version with more and more crowds flocking to the stadiums.

ICC chief executive Dave Richardson feels that the Test and One-day championships are result of a "collective desire to secure a vibrant future for international bilateral cricket."

"The approval of both leagues is the conclusion of two years of work from the members, who have explored a whole range of options to bring context to every game," he said.

As decided at the meeting of the ICC Board in Auckland on Friday, nine Test playing nations will be play three series at home and away against each other. Points will be awarded on the basis of a team's performance after each match and series. A World Test League final will decide the winner.

Each of the top nine Test teams will play six series over two years, three at home and three away, and they have two to five Tests. The leading two countries will then contest a final, most likely at Lord's.

The Test championship matches will be played over five days and, despite resistance from the MCC and its cricket committee, the ICC Board decided to go ahead with the first four-day trial Test, between South Africa and Zimbabwe on Boxing Day.

The four-day trial Test is essentially to give new Test-playing countries to compete with the bigwigs of international cricket with confidence.

There is nothing much to do with the One-day Internationals (ODI) league and it will start in 2020 and will pave the way for the qualifiers for the 2023 World Cup.

The 12 full members and one associate member will fight it out for the 10 automatic qualification spots. The associate nations will have to win the ICC World Cricket League Championship. The qualification for associate nations is going to be tough as they have to compete with the full members for an automatic qualification spot.

A Test championship was first floated by the West Indies when they were riding high and their captain Clive Lloyd had an idea. Then Pakistan and South Africa came up with their proposals before former New Zealand captain, the late Martin Crowe, revealed his format.

The puritans say the tradition of playing Test cricket should continue without much tinkering, whatever the trappings the ICC is contemplating. They are opposed to even the four-day Tests on a trial basis. The first one to come out in opposition is Gundappa Viswanth, the batting classicist, who said the status of Test cricket is being brought down. He is not sure how it works, but he is not happy.

The ICC had no choice to introduce some cosmetic changes after seeing Test after Test being played in empty stadiums. It decided to infuse some life so that every Test attracts the crowds back as championship points will make it interesting.

Topmost Cricket News

 

For over a decade, there has been loud thinking on a world Test Championship format, but nothing came of it. They even thought of scrapping the Champions Tropy, saying that each format should only have one world championship, to push through the Test championship.

The ICC retained the Championship, the 2013 edition was to be the last one, but it is now back and attracted hug crowds when India played Pakistan in the final in England.

The problem with Test cricket is that no one is willing to go to the stadium for five days as was done till a couple of decades ago as they find watching it on television with spoon-fed expert comments is more interesting from the crowd distractions at the venue.

Yet, not many oldtimers would appreciate the Test cricket being tinkered with and that is one of the reasons for the administrators not venturing into a Test Championship so far, fearing geopolitical and logistical problems. For instance, how will India and Pakistan play their home and away matches? If they have to play at neutral venues, the very purpose of the championship is defeated.

The ICC officials apparently assured Pakistan that they would get to play India either in the league or outside. Once they start playing each other, the league will truly kick off.

The are some of the hurdles which will have to be crossed if the Test Championship has to succeed.

Dana White Says Conor McGregor vs. Tony Ferguson Fight 'Makes Sense'

After Conor McGregor put up a respectable showing in losing by 10th-round knockout to Floyd Mayweather in the boxing ring, the world of combat sports has wondered who he'll take on next.

Will it be another boxer? A third fight against Nate Diaz?

Neither, according to UFC president Dana White. White told SINow's Maggie Gray that he would like to see McGregor fight Tony Ferguson next.

"Tony Ferguson just won the interim title, and Conor McGregor has the 155-pound title, so that's the fight that makes sense," White said. "The fight that has to happen."

On Oct. 7, Ferguson, 33, beat Kevin Lee by third-round submission to capture the UFC Lightweight interim championship. After the fight, Ferguson went on a profantiy-ridden tirade challenging McGregor to a fight.

Warning: The video below contains NSFW language.

White was then asked whether there is a timetable for McGregor, 29, to return to the ring.

"I don't, I'd like to see Conor fight before the end of the year. So, we'll see."

Dana White Would Play the National Anthem Before UFC Fights if Trump Asked

If the government decided combat sports needed to be more patriotic, UFC president Dana White would have no problem playing the national anthem at his promotion’s events.

Speaking on SI Now Friday, White said he would begin the patriotic performance if Donald Trump requested it.

“I guess if the president came and asked me to do the national anthem, I’d do the national anthem,” White said. “I have no problem with the national anthem. All sports do it. In boxing, they play the national anthem of everybody involved in the fight. It takes 25 or 30 minutes for the fight to start. It’s just something we never did.”

White is a longtime public supporter of Trump’s, going back to the early 2000’s when Trump’s Atlantic City casino hosted two events for the fledgling fight company. (Trump’s casino went bankrupt, while UFC grew into a massively valuable organization.) White also spoke in support of the then-presidential nominee at the Republican National Convention last summer.

“Donald championed the UFC before it was popular, before it grew into a successful business, and I will always be so grateful to him for standing with us in those early days, so tonight I stand with Donald Trump,” White said in his speech.

UFC does not typically begin its events with the national anthem, though White did point out that the song was performed at UFC 33 after the Sept. 11 terror attacks. Everlast performed “America the Beautiful” at UFC 216 in Las Vegas last Saturday, six days after a gunman killed 58 people there.

McGregor calls out Ferguson for UFC return

After defeat to Floyd Mayweather in his boxing debut, Conor McGregor appears set for a return to the UFC octagon to take on Tony Ferguson.
